Two local postcodes, NN3 9EP and NN6 8EL, were both among the lucky ones pulled out in the People’s Postcode Lottery Good Friday draw.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie sent her well-wishes to the winners in Leatherworks Way, Little Billing, and Bettycroft Close in Ravensthorpe, saying: “What lovely news for all of them, congratulations to all our winners!"
